More great news on the sporting front with the appointment of a new Head of Rugby.
We are delighted that up-and-coming coach James Vecchio will be joining us in September.
Mr Vecchio previously worked at King Edward’s School in Birmingham and has been working with Bath Rugby as a Development Coach, before recently switching to a similar role with Bristol Bears.
Our Head of Sport, Mr Tom Walter, said: “I am delighted that we have managed to bring someone with James’s expertise and enthusiasm into the Sports team at Queen’s.
“Through his links with Bristol Bears and other well-respected coaches in the South West, I’m confident we will be able to build a fantastic rugby programme for the students.”
Mr Vecchio added: “I can’t wait to get started – it’s so exciting to be joining Queen’s.
“This is a major opportunity to grow a programme and develop the young players at the college.
“It’s a holistic approach aimed at boosting participation and giving the students a better rugby experience.”
Mr Vecchio played for Bath U18s and Cardiff Met Uni before joining Bournville RFC in the Midlands. He completed his teacher training at Bath Spa.
